The Goodfoot Band hail from the deep south delta of Dorset, where they have been cooking up some home grown funk and soul. T…he Isla EP is their second release and it is clear that the song has become king for the Dorset quartet.
Catchy choruses and irresistible hooks abound all neatly attached to the tightest of grooves and capturing the live feel of a Saturday night party band with over 200 gigs under their belt.
Recent award winners in the Dorset Unsigned Music Awards, the band has opened for acts includingThe James Taylor Quartet, Ki…kki Dee, Midge Ure, Paul Young and The SAS band and has featured regularly on local Radio and BBC 6Music
The music leans towards the classic funk of the Average White Band and The Meters and soul divas such as Aretha and Chaka. However with their feet firmly planted in the present the music sits easily amongst the current purveyors of sophisticated pop/soul
The live show is led by the flamboyant Vicky Barents who’s on stage energy is as infectious as the rhythms laid down by the band. They take the audience on a journey from simmering jazz/funk to downright dirty horn driven soul. But it’s not just about the relentless groove. A closer listen reveals a strong pop sensibility and an appreciation of good song writing, whatever the genre and this is the back bone of the Goodfoot sound.
